Description



Produced by the Lone Jack Cigarette Company of Lynchburg, Virginia, the 1887 N370 St. Louis Browns designation features 13 members of the championship squad. Truly rare in any condition, few examples of these borrowed and cropped N172 Old Judge "Browns Champs" images have been made available for public sale. Fortunately, for the nineteenth century Type card specialist, the offered Rudy Kimler (Kemmler) example fills a massive void. This card was neatly extracted from a period page (8 other N172 Old Judge cards from the same scrapbook are also available as a separate lot in this auction). Although attached with glue, the sepia portrait of the no-hit/all-field backstop is crease-free with crystal clear imagery. Despite a spot of soiling on the "JA" in Lone Jack and faded advertising text along the bottom, this diamond relic still presents admirably.
